    Using mysqldb in Python

    Hey guys.

    I am trying to setup a Django project and really struggling getting mysqldb to work under Mac Osx with python 2.7.

    I downloaded + installed the mysqldb code - it compiled and installed the egg ok. I also installed mysql and even created a couple of symbolic links such as
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql
    However when I go to run my Django project the following errors are shown :

    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
